a networking and learning opportunity
Junior Enterprise USA is committed to bringing undergraduate and graduate students the most outstanding networking and learning opportunities and that could not be different with our events.
With this year's Summit theme: Creating the Future, we invite all students who are interested in entrepreneurship, conscious businesses, and in disruptive technologies, to register and participate in an event that will feature keynote speakers talking about conscious capitalism and artificial intelligence, a hackaton (called the JE USA Challenge), and a non-traditional career fair where students will have the opportunity to genuinely connect with recruiters from a wide-variety of companies.
Where and when will the 2018 JE USA Summit happen?
Where: Atlanta, Georgia. The first day of the event will be held at Emory University and the second day will be held at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Exact event locations will be sent to students upon registration.
When: October 12-13th, 2018.

Who should attend?
We invite all undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in entrepreneurship, conscious businesses, and/or technology innovation to attend!
Regardless of your involvement with a Junior Enterprise, if you are looking to make an impact, meet other incredibly driven students, and participate in meaningful networking, you are our guest to join the 2018 JE USA Summit.
We believe that in promoting such open event will foster even more networking and learning opportunities to all of our members.
How much will the event cost?
Prices range from $70-80 dollars for Junior Entrepreneurs and from $85-$100 for non-Junior Entrepreneurs.
Fees include: Entrance to the event, breakfast and lunch on both days.
Free Housing for Junior Entrepreneurs
That's right! If you are a member of a Junior Enterprise or a Junior Initiative, you are eligible for not only cheaper tickets but also to be housed for free during the Summit. Once you get your ticket, you will have the option to choose to be hosted by a student member of Prime Consulting, the Junior Enterprise hosting the event, and we will be in touch in September to make housing arrangements.
A meaningful, non-traditional Career Fair
Real conversations. Meaningful connections. Resume-free. That's what the JE USA Career Fair will look like.
Managed by Eureca, a youth-centered recruiting and employer branding firm focused on providing excellent recruiting experience, the JE USA Career Fair will feature small group conversations between recruiters and students about relevant topics that students really want to learn about the firm.
The connection will be real. It will be human. Recruiters and students will get to know each other above resume level and that will foster a more productive and enjoyable experience for both sides.
Why should you attend?
"The culmination of the conference led me to have a deeper understanding of what the Junior Enterprise movement is. One of the biggest takeaways I received from this trip was that we, as a new wave generation of scholars, have the power to change the world"
